iPads!

I just got an email today, letting me know I have been awarded 5 iPads to use in my classroom! All that grant writing paid off. I will first have to attend a two day training before receiving them. I am so EXCITED =) I can't wait!

  5. I have 2 and am thinking about purchasing a third one with my Tax Credit Money. AZ has a great system for that. I managed to raise $2450 for my spending.

    My math series has apps and the new one we adopted does too. AR has just put out an app and Story Chime and Read me have free apps. There is lots available if you just look around.
